'Cajun Pawn Stars': $35,000 Disappointment For A Pawn Shop Regular Over A Gold Coin (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It was almost a great day for one pawn shop regular on the latest episode of "Cajun Pawn Stars" (Wed., 9 p.m. ET on History). He thought he'd stumbled onto a jackpot when he brought in an Indian head gold coin. The appraiser, at first, gave him a staggering estimate valuing the coin at $35,000.

But upon further examination, he discovered in tiny print on the coin the word "Copy." That was the last thing he wanted to see, because he now had to explain to his loyal customer that the $35,000 number he'd just thrown out was overselling the value of the piece ... by a lot!

When the customer asked what it meant that the coin had "Copy" engraved on it, the pawn shop worker told him, "I'll tell you what; I'll trade you a soda for it."

The customer took it in stride, cracking a joke about his luck that was more charming and colloquial than logical.

"When it comes to luck, I might as well be poopin' with the polecats," he quipped.
